Hughes interested in Kakuta loan deal
Saturday 22 January 2011
The Fulham manager, Mark Hughes, is hoping to tie up a loan deal for the Chelsea midfielder Gaël Kakuta.
The 19-year-old has yet to break into the Blues first team on a regular basis, and could be tempted by a temporary move to his London neighbours.
"He's a player I know and I like the qualities he has," Hughes said of the France under-20 international, who has made just five starts in two and a half seasons at Stamford Bridge. "We are having lots of conversations about players, but at the moment we don't know if any will go through.
"There is a lot of interest out there, whether we can conclude the deals only time will tell."
